Only some days ago, we talked about the new Pershing 5 X, the most important new creation by Ferretti Group, but, on addition to this sporting coupé, the company has announced the arrival of two new fly boats, a 45-foot boat and a 85-foot one.
The first one, called Ferretti 450, is a “small” boat arriving next July, which hopes to repeat the success registered by Ferretti 550, launched six months ago and already sold in 8 samples. Among news announced by the group management, represented by Alberto Galassi, Chief Executive Officer, and Stefano de Vivo, Chief Commercial Executive, there is also a “back-to-basics” approach in terms of construction process because it will return to be managed by the brand itself.
The second model, called Ferretti 850, is a bigger boat which marks the Ferretti’s comeback to 80′ and 90′ boats planning. Despite the size (77 tons at full load), design is elegant and contemporary with many possibilities of customisation as regards interiors. The basic layout has 4 cabins ( and 2 crew cabins) and 4 bathrooms, with a big astern master-cabin exploiting all the available 6,3 metres of the main beam. The fore pilot house can be entirely immersed and it is an evolution of the previous Dual Mode System. The possible engines are two: a 1800 hp Man engine or a 1900 ho Man engine, with a cruising speed of 26 and 27 knots, respectively.
